People display a lot of signs when they have feelings for someone else. These signs are expressed in numerous ways. There are a lot of signs that point out when someone is attracted to you.

Furthermore, there are a lot of uncontrollable signs ranging from body language, to subconscious speech patterns which you may not be able to immediately notice, as they are the silent greenlights our bodies give off when we feel attraction for someone else.
Luckily, there are more than a few signs to look out for to tell if your crush also likes you. Today, we’ll be taking a look at 5 signs to tell if your crush likes you.
1. Lip Biting
When it comes to discovering whether your crush likes you or not, their true feelings will lie hidden in non-verbal clues. So you have to pay close attention to their body language and actions from head to toe to understand how much they like you.
The next time you meet, pay very close attention to their mouth, of course not in a creepy way, but just glance at their mouth from time to time to discover how they feel.
If your crush bites their lip when the two of you are together, it doesn’t mean their lips are dry or chapped. Consciously or subconsciously, some people bite their lip in a flirtatious manner to show how much they are interested in you.
This is one of the top body language clues when it comes to expressing intense attraction. Your crush may not even realize they’re doing it. Just quietly observe and note that they have feelings for you and you are definitely not in the friend zone.
2. Smiling Genuinely
Since you now have a clue on what it means when your crush bites their lip, now taking a step further, you will need to be able to know how to gauge your crush’s smile to determine if they like you.
The next time you bump into the person you like, pay close attention to whether they greet you with a smile.. Although, if they do, that’s not enough to determine how much they really like you. You have to look deeper into their smile to see if they actually have a thing for you.
When someone is attracted to you, there will be some noticeable changes in the shape and structure of their face when they smile. To start, a genuine smile is usually made with only the top teeth and the smile should last a few seconds even after they look away from you.
Sometimes, they may smile so hard that their eyes may close a bit as well. So, if your crush is displaying all these signs, then they for sure like you.
3. Touching Their Neck
Physical touch is a very important part of determining someone’s true feelings. But this doesn’t mean your crush has to brush up against your arm or play with your hair to let you know they like you.
When you’re with someone who’s really interested in you, they will subconsciously touch this part of their body. According to body language experts, the throat represents communication and vulnerability. So when your crush touches this area when they are around you, it not only means they are interested, but are also worried about how you will perceive them.
Moreover, everyone wants to show their best side when they are trying to impress someone. Your crush is no different. So, the next time you notice them lightly playing with their neck and throat, just know that they could be feeling exposed, sensitive, and a bit unsure about your feelings. What you can do is to subtly flirt back with them to let off the pressure. This will make your crush feel more comfortable around you.
4. Licking Lips
If you’re with your crush and they lick their lips once, don’t pay too much attention to it. But if they do this a few times while the two of you are engaged in a conversation, it means they definitely like you. Girls and guys subconsciously lick their lips for many reasons.
Many people do it as a way of showing their interests and attraction. This sign is usually involuntary and completely subconscious, meaning they may not even notice they’re doing it. So, the next time you are with your crush and you notice this, it may mean your feelings for your crush are most likely mutual.
5. Speech Patterns
Speech patterns is probably one of the signs to tell if your crush likes you. You may never notice if you don’t pay close attention to your crush when you are engaging in a conversation. When someone has feelings for you and holds you in high regard, they gradually pick up your speech pattern. This may vary from mimicking the way to pronounce some words, to a phrase you commonly use.
Initially, you may not even notice this. Paying close attention to your crush over time will help you to catch these subtle signs.
So, if you have noticed any of the above signs discussed in your crush, it may go to prove that your crush indeed reciprocates your feelings. The next step to take is to properly address those feelings. But just in case you have not noticed any of these signs, it doesn’t necessarily mean your crush doesn’t have feelings for you.
Some people are great at masking their emotions or are simply too shy to express themselves. So just be patient and pay close attention to them. If they like you, they are bound to display one of these signs sooner or later.
